Did you decide to focus on any career growth improvements this year? I like to use the turn of a new year to reflect on the past year and think about the year ahead, and I usually include a career goal in my plans. But like a lot of New Year’s resolutions, it’s easy to lose steam on those career growth goals fast — so nowadays I try to proactively find ways to keep the momentum up.
I like how you point out that focusing on your own career growth is not only a benefit to you, but to those around you as well. When achieving our goals is beneficial to others, it becomes more powerful motivation to stay on track when things get hard.
